This forthcoming week is Super Bowl week, and you can feel all the preparation and excitement. Las Vegas is a hot spot for watching (and wagering on) the game, but the Atlanta Falcons versus the New England Patriots isn’t the only thing that will keep people entertained this week. Check out what Sin City has in store on the live concert calendar for locals and visitors alike, this week.
The best concerts this week in Las Vegas (for ticket information, click artist name):

Mondays can be rough, but instead of letting it get the best of you, head downtown to catch Leopold And His Fiction at Bunkhouse Tavern.
Tuesday, Jan. 31
Nickel F***ing Beer Night at Beauty Bar has become a Las Vegas institution, and why not hear a live set from Chris Lorenzo while you’re at it.
Wednesday, Feb. 1
In Vegas, the weekend officially starts on Wednesday, and on this fine hump day, you can see Carnifex at Vinyl, or catch up on Celine Dion’s famous residency at The Colosseum at Caesars Palace.
Friday, Feb. 3
Who doesn’t have a pining nostalgia for the good ol’ 1990s, especially now. The I Love The 90s celebration at The Joint will feature Vanilla Ice, Naughty By Nature, Sugar Ray's Mark McGrath, All-4-One, Tone Loc and Young MC.
Although his heyday was a decade later, the party continues with Fabolous at Drai’s.
Or for something different altogether head downtown for Tommy James & the Shondells at The Golden Nugget.
Saturday, Feb. 4
